READ AN EXCERPT HIGHLIGHTING WANG KEPING BY CHRISTIE'SWang Keping30 Nov,2011|ARTIST'S NEWS

 " Qi Baishi once mentioned, 'the wonder lies in the shade between likeness and unlikeness, bearing total resemblance is far too flattering while total abstraction is deceiving'. This idea inspired me strikingly in my opinion. Artistic creation rests not on theories, yet of course, my workers were immensely affected by the chinese philosophical aesthetics, and I was deeply rooted. I focus not on the form or the precise portrayal; whats really important is meaning itself. As the Chinese saying goes, 'everything can be left behind when you reach the gist, the mere form is unimportant.' "
